    Jelly Roll Race question

    Jean the jelly roll Queen has youtube videos out about calculating the size of your quilt and how many jelly rolls you need. I will be making this quilt in a work shop next month and I have two jelly rolls that have 85 strips total. what size quilt with this make? Ideally it would be something to atleast put on a twin bed. I understand part of the math but the 32 and 16 numbers in her equation are confusing the crud outa me. Could someone explain her video with the 16 number in a 80 by 96 quilt. Where does the 32 come from? I realize that 16 is half that which is the answer of 2 1/2 inch strips. But please explain where the magic number 32 is coming from? Thank You.

    Re: Jelly Roll Race question

    I have not seen her video, but I made my own chart kinda. There's a 16 and a 32 in there, anyway.
    My recipe was for a 79x86 using 68 strips, but I think, . . . quoting my own page for a regualr sized JR quilt:
    Then you grab the two ends and sew them right sides together for about 100″ long, making it a 16 piece strip set 32.5 wide
    That she probably uses 2 rolls, each done sperately until you get to the above step. Then instead of folding it in half to sew it to itself, you just sew the other piece, which would make it 100 by 64 but that doesn't sound right either.

      I think 32 represents the number of rows you have in a JRR quilt using one jellyroll. I think the way of making a large JRR is not simply using more strips because you end up getting length and not enough width. You do need to watch all of the tutorials. I'm sorry that I don't have the time right now to watch them to help you. Surely someone, maybe even Jean herself, will see this and be able to help.

        Check out the links in my user notes section of my profile re: jelly roll race quilts.

        Then, if you still have questions, PM me.

        I found the formulas in these links -- especially the 2nd one -- to be invaluable and easy to understand!

          That is correct Barb 16 and 32 refers to the number of rows! Thanks! But adding strips increases the width, not the length. 32 rows will always give you a 64" length.

          I have a lot of this information in my User Notes. Look toward the middle of the notes for a later version.

            Very similar to the formulas in my videos. I like how Liz Writes it out in long form. Formulas are the same.

                I'm not DramaMama but can give you that info. To find someone's user notes first you click on their screen name, a box will come up under it with several selections - click on the one that says Profile. Once you get to the profile page on the left side under their avatar you will see a column with a list of options so just click on User Notes and you will find all the notes someone has made!

                Hope that helps.
